Hannah Waddingham in The Wizard of Oz?

Sounds like Hannah Waddingham will be getting in some valuable practice when she appears as the Witch in Sondheim’s Into the Woods at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre next month.

She is strongly tipped to play another witch: the Wicked Witch of the East in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz which opens at the London Palladium next March (previews from 7th February).She played this part at the workshop ALW ran earlier this year.

The only other casting to date is Danielle Hope (who was the winner of BBC’s Over the Rainbow) is to play Dorothy, with her runner up Sophie Evans covering for holidays and performing the role every Tuesday night from 8th March 2011.
